and reprocessing. if it isn't legal, everybody should stop. why are they talking only about iran, though. therefore the rights is there. the argument is -- the western side is emphasizing, maintaining that responsibilities come first. and then rights. iran maintains the rights come first and responsibility come after. i think in moscow, they -- already they have agreed on istanbul on a step by step plan. in one step, they can agree on a simultaneous approach. i mean the p 5 plus 1 respects the rights of iran for peaceful nuclear technology, including enrichment on their npt. and iran also immediately at the same time accept to sign the tentative draft agreement already agreed in tehran during last visit of amano. this is a work plan which if iran signs this would address all the ambiguities and technical questions of the ia a ea, including the possibility i mentioned. this can mean parallel in order to end the game chicken and egg game. the third one is the focal point of the p 5 plus 1 during last nine ten years, always they have been focusing on suspension. i believe they should in the future neg
what you have said you would be in favor of encouraging countries like jordan, like turkey to use iran as a model for nuclear development? >> no. >> no? >> should i explain? >> yes. >> i think the enrichment today's just because of the u.s.. but after the revolution with iran decided engage in nuclear activities, the u.s. position was no nuclear power plant for iran. the u.s. was not ready to recognize the rights of iran for power plants. this was the reason they could not do anything in order to complete the unfinished projects. the western countries left iran with billions of dollars of unfinished projects, and they were not ready -- iran had no plan, no program for in richmond, and the revolutionaries decided even to decrease to a minimum the ambitious projects. they canceled many projects. but when the rest challenge iran with the rights, even for nuclear power plants, you left no other option for iranians. then, after iran mastered the in richmond, then the u.s. said, "ok, now, we recognize the rights of iran four nuclear power plants. after iran mastered nuclear enrichment. this
was worked on with the interlocutors in iran over transparency but it was clear that was not going to work because in many ways the iranians should receive something more. and an estimate of the situation has to take into account the domestic imperative that influenced both sides. my summation is with united states smaller is better and for iran bigger is better and that is where the two side done coming at this. smaller and better for the united states because of an election year i speak frankly. the president takes great risks in making big compromises because the points of attack are multiplied and explaining why he went so far particularly early in the gate is a difficult situation. the president has national interest imperative in finding a diplomatic solution. the effort to continue to find a diplomatic solution is a small but not very conclusive weight against precipitous israeli action to attack iran. keeping the process going is valuable but keeping the process going until after the election with no movement also has a conclusion of sterility that will arrive sooner or later if so
. mr. president, if i can shift to iran. >> i want to say, where are all the women? seem more optimistic than hillary about women. you know, president obama asked me who's against democracy in the middle east. i told him, the husbands. they don't want to share with the women equal rights. so why are we becoming optimistic? my optimism stems from a different point. today the children are on the side of their fathers, not on the side of their mothers. and that is my hope, they understand that if they want to reform, really their country, and many of them in cities. and requested modern communication. they won't give up. democracy is a little bit complicated because some people think democracy is another -- from being a muslim to be a democrat. well, it's not the case. because islam is a spiritual position. not an economic doctrine. and for that reason, i'm a little bit even more optimistic than you are. and i think one should watch the combination of the women and the youngsters. and the fathers may find themselves all of a sudden -- the future so that -- these are my notes of o

but it is not a military role that is -- a military role that is with iran. that is why they are there but they could gain the defense capability and could gain an important political role in the alliance if it were to become the push for example of changing the deterrent posture from one that is based completely on punishment to one that is based more on the nile. going back to some bizarre, old-fashioned debates that i thought i had seen the back of in 1990 but never the less those of the things that are being talked about. if you have a different deterrent posture that move from deterrence by denial, clearly you have are completely different position within the alliance to discuss what is going to be the deterrent posture in the alliance but that is the first thing -- a great shame. sir it was not an overall discussion looking at a conceptual understanding of what the posture of the alliance should be. the other role of missile defense would be more political because there would be a facility to say we don't have the non strategic nuclear weapons anymore. they were not needed any way with this new defe

with respect to iran and with respect to syria? >> well, with respect to iran they are on board. you know, one of the real successes of our diplomatic strategy toward iran, which was to be willing to engage with them but to keep a very clear pressure track going is that the chinese and the russians are part of a unified negotiating stance that we have presented to the iranians, most recently in moscow. i think the iranian have been surprised. they have expended a certain amount of effort to try to break apart this so-called p5 plus 1. and they haven't been successful. the russians and the chinese have been absolutely clear they don't want to see iran with a nuclear weapon. they have to see concrete steps taken by iran that are in line with iran's international obligations, and we have said we'll do action for action, but we have to see some willingness on the part of the iranians to abt first. so i think it took three-plus years because one of the efforts that we've been engaged in is to make the case that as difficult as it is to put these sanctions on iran and particularly to ask countries l
again, after the revolution, france was france. deploying the contract iran had already with france on enrichment. if you had not declined, if you had accepted the right. the enrichment was supposed do be done in your lab, not iran. the second issue is that if really the problem is nuclear bond, 100% confident that iranian side would accept the whole military dimensions issue lodged before mainly 2003. there's some continuing disputes. the intelligence community is basically continuing to reassure the judgments made in the 2011 intelligence committee remained. that therefore the pmd question in my view is of the most importance to, in effect, provide the iaea with the fullest possible information to guard against problems in the future. i would begin the south african model. a no fault process. you tell the truth and the whole truth, there are no consequences. if you don't tell the truth, there are all conceivable contrasts. in part it's a test of good faith. in part it's a way to determine the answer. in part tths to take the burden of the guilt trip off the back of iran. which in

-a-vis iran in particular. what do we do in the future about this? i'm going to short cut it here. senator mccain has it right. we should give more assistance to the free syrian army including tactical guidance, command and control. that means boots on the ground. not in syria but in turkey. i'm talking about special forces. one lieutenant colonel and a handful of majors. they work on command and control. they go in and organize. help the free syrian army be better organized. decrease the number of atrocities they are perpetrating on the ground. make sure we don't have what looks like libya in the end with hundreds of militias not holding to the central government, running around refusing to disarm and the government having to bribe the militias to provide security. to work with assad, et cetera. that's one. we should be building, as the senator said, a coalition of the willing. let's call them the better friends of syria. not just friends of syria. we should plan coalition military operations. with an emphasis on arab forces. the uae and qatar were instrumental in libya. they are on the righ

, the rising tension in iran's nuclear program is another significant issue. on turkey's doorstep and in a literal way against which we cannot afford to remain indifferent. we do not want iran to acquire nuclear weapons. we do not want any other country in the region acquire nuclear weapons. turkey is probably the only country most directly concerned about the possibility of iran acquiring nuclear weapons. such a development would gravely threaten the peace, security, and stability in the region by triggering a nuclear armament race. that is completely against turkey's vision for the region, and we have said so at every opportunity in new york, brussels, and in tehran. similarly, we are against any military intervention in iran. it would have devastating effects on an already volatile region. diplomacy is the only viable option in resolving the issue of iran's nuclear program. likewise, continued engagement and dialogue even at the point where it seems to fail is important to prevent iran from going further astray. therefore, we are committed to facilitating diplomatic dialogue am
you introduce yourself? >> my name is javier -- i was born in iran. i live in florida. you mentioned the last statement was the partnership between america and turkey is going to help to movement of the north africa and middle east. but honestly, if we look at it, yesterday he mentioned that the commander of the u.s. military in africa, african commander, i believe, he said there's three major terrorist groups. al qaeda, the nigerian group, and some group in mali. and somalia, they make an alliance. the question is this. if west or whoever shows interest create this -- they took away the gadhafi power. which nobody wants that guy. don't get me wrong. because of this, we have more problem in libya. more problem in western africa. whose benefit is this? is it the people of africa? what is going on here? the financing of the war. finance both of the war. you can use turkey. you can use iraq, syria, afghanistan. america has better position today as an influence in the middle east with one million or half a million soldiers in middle east, compared to 20 years ago. which is more influence
of assad would be the biggest blow to iran in 25 years. yes, there are risks to greater involvement in syria. the opposition is still struggling to get organized. al qaeda and other extremists are working to highjack the revolution. and there are reports of reprisal killings. these risks are real and serious, but risks of continuing to do nothing are worse. if we fail to act, it will threaten our allies. with or without assad the country will develop into a full-scale civil war with areas of ungoverned space that al qaeda and its allies will occupy. violence and radicalism will spill even more into lebanon and iraq, fuelling sectarian conflicts that are still burning in both countries, syria will turn into a battlefield between sunni and shia extremists, each backed by foreign powers which will ignite sectarian tensions from north africa, to the gulf, and risk a wider regional conflict. this is the course we're on in syria. we must act now to avoid it. the u.s. action i envision would not be unilateral. it would be multi-lateral. we would work closely with arab and european allies,

this arab spring is turning rapidly into a muslim winter. we have to understand that iran has been the extreme radical islam form in the middle east while we had egypt as a counter, of a secular, very moderate regime over the past 35, 40 years. if morsi wins and the muslim brotherhood wins, means we're looking at a radical islamic middle east, full of tensions and will not be a simple situation for israel or the west. >> eric: could it is eventually lead to a scuttling of the peace treaty? >> well, effectively the peace treaty, while formally it still exists, effectively is not there anymore. there is no meaningful economic ties, but, still, we're certainly not in a situation of war and that is good news. we hope in any case the peace treaty will remain intact each under a radical regime, though, chances are low. what it means is america has to stay strong, israel has to stay strong under this very unstable environment. >> eric: do you think the peace treaty and any stability that remains would really stay in place if the muslim brotherhood takes over egypt? >> look, i'm worried ab

the leadership of a bin laden and on his relationship with iran and pakistan. i would be happy to go into more details about other aspects. the important qualification has to do with the fact the report is a study of all the 17 documents captured from his compound. they consist of electronic letters totaling 175 pages. in view of the same volume, it would be irresponsible to claim they reveal conclusive information about al qaeda. the documents are highly valuable and at the very least to the demand a reassessment of what has been dubbed as al qaeda central. this brings me to the sound bite, witches, bin laden's frustration with regional groups and his inability to exercise control over their actions is the most compelling story to be told on the basis of the 17 documents. why is this compelling? because it has been assumed al qaeda was able to rebuild following the losses it suffered in the aftermath of the military campaign in afghanistan in 2001 and it has also been able to access the organization. the intelligence community labeled this as a al qaeda central based on the leaders who were s
highly enriched uranium. they expressed their resolve in a new round of talks on irans nuclear program. the first day of' two-day meeting in moscow ended on monday. participants included the new negotiators and five u.n. security council members and germany. the foreign policy chief katherine ashton is also attending. they say it's impossible to discuss halting the uranium enrichment program. they added the country has the right to continue with the program for peaceful purposes. the comments were an official response to a proposal by the western countries at the previous meeting in baghdad last month. the western delegates at that time suggested they would ease some economic sanctions on iran if the country stopped enriching uranium to levels used in weapons. iaea spokespersons told reporters that iran is simply repeating old statements. a high-ranking iranian official said the western countries need to win talks to make progress in the dialogue. they will resume on tuesday. >>> a u.n. conference opens on wednesday in rio de janeiro on how to meet human needs while protecting the plan
